A second chance doesn't guarantee a touchdown in this new contemporary romance from the author of Intercepted.
Single-mother Poppy Patterson moved across the country when she was sixteen and pregnant to find a new normal. After years of hard work, she's built a life she loves. It may include a job at a nightclub, weekend soccer games, and more stretch marks than she anticipated, but it's all hers, and nobody can take that away. Well, except for one person.
TK Moore, the starting wide receiver for the Denver Mustangs, dreamt his entire life about being in the NFL. His world is football, parties, and women. Maybe at one point he thought his future would play out with his high school sweetheart by his side, but Poppy is long gone and he's moved on.
When Poppy and TK cross paths in the most unlikely of places, emotions they've suppressed for years come rushing back. But with all the secrets they never told each other lying between them, they'll need more than a dating playbook to help them navigate their relationship.

I always seem to be a sucker for second chance romances, and secret baby ones at that. I haven't really been one for sports romances, but two books in and this author is changing that for me!
I enjoyed this book. I laughed. I got emotional. I was itching for that happily ever after that most romance readers are in search of. I can't say enough nice things about this book.
These characters and the writing really make this book. They are likeable and relatable. I found myself getting caught up in their story to the point of not wanting to put this book down. It's witty, heartbreaking at times, and entertaining.
The only downfall for me with this book was the emotional aspect. The author gets you worked up to the point of being over emotional (almost to tears), then pulls back. She never actually follows through with delivering those scenes until you are a blubbering mess. Not that I wanted to cry, but those scenes were a huge build up then just stop. I felt cheated.
Overall, this book is an enjoyable, quick second chance romance with some really great characters. If you haven't read the previous book, don't worry. It really isn't necessary. But I do suggest you read both books from this newer author.
